I spotted these irises next door and was impressed with this one because of the low back lit lighting. I know I recently posted one of mine, but I couldn't pass this one up.

I love this shot!!! On the day that I posted an iris shot, Joyce wrote in her comment for me to be sure and see yours. I'm home now and clicking back, and I see why she directed me to your shot.
